Crossover Day is Monday March 8, 2021
The deadline for talking to your legislators about these key bills is Monday
Crossover Day means that bills that start in the House must pass there, and go to the Senate for debate before Monday or that bill is dead for the session. The same for Senate bills: they must pass the whole Senate and go to the House for debate or they are dead for the session.
